SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Public Meeting

    NIOSH will hold a public meeting to allow commenters to present 
information on an increase in respirator certification and approval 
fees on individual respirator manufacturers, the respirator market, or 
on those industries that rely on NIOSH approved respiratory equipment.
    Requests to make presentations at the public meeting should be 
mailed to the NIOSH Docket Office, Robert A. Taft Laboratories, MS-C34, 
4676 Columbia Parkway, Cincinnati, OH 45226. Requests may also be 
submitted by telephone (513) 533-8611, facsimile (513) 533-8285, or 
emailed to nioshdocket@cdc.gov with the words ``respirator fees 
presentation'' in the subject line. All requests to present should 
contain the name, address, telephone number and relevant business 
affiliations of the presenter, and the approximate time requested for 
the presentation. Oral presentations will be limited to 15 minutes. 
After reviewing the requests for presentations, NIOSH will notify the 
presenter that his/her presentation is scheduled. If a participant is 
not in attendance when his/her presentation is scheduled to begin, the 
remaining participants will be heard in order. After the last scheduled 
speaker is heard, participants who missed their assigned times may be 
allowed to speak, limited by time available.
    Attendees who wish to speak but did not submit a request for the 
opportunity to make a presentation may be given this opportunity after 
the scheduled speakers are heard, at the discretion of the presiding 
officer and limited by time available. This meeting will also be using 
audio/LiveMeeting Conferencing, remote access capabilities where 
interested parties may listen in and view the presentations over the 
Internet simultaneously. Parties remotely accessing the meeting will 
have the opportunity to comment during the open comment period.
    Registration is required for both in-person and LiveMeeting 
participation. Because this meeting is being held at a Federal site, 
pre-registration is required on or before April 26, 2013 and a 
government-issued photo ID (driver's license or passport) will be 
required to obtain entrance to the facility. Non[hyphen]US citizens 
need to register by March 29, to allow sufficient time for mandatory 
facility security clearance procedures to be completed.
    An email confirming registration will be sent from NIOSH for both 
in-person participation and audio conferencing participation. Details 
required to participate via the conferencing will be provided by NIOSH 
in a separate email. This option will be available to participants on a 
first come, first served basis and is limited to the first 100 
participants.
